Despite Reaching for a Few Early-Rounders, Lambeau Leapers Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

Putting together a decent team, Lambeau Leapers didn't want to show up the DFL-SBN League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a solid chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in sixth-place in DFL-SBN League at 6-8-0 (1,957 points). With five WRs on the roster, Lambeau Leapers loaded up on solid pass catchers; their WRs are projected to average 225 points this season, close to the league average of 216. They wound up with one of the weakest duos of TEs in the league, as they added Martellus Bennett and Jared Cook.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Lambeau Leapers (four), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the weakest slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Lambeau Leapers also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Dominating Duo

    WR and DEF are both projected to be really solid units for Lambeau Leapers.

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Lambeau Leapers will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Mike Wallace), fourth- (Tyler Lockett), and fifth-ranked (Marvin Jones Jr.) wideouts.

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Lambeau Leapers hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Risk Averse

    Lambeau Leapers minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • Digging Deep

    Jared Cook is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Lambeau Leapers for their faith! Or not.

  • Mr. Relevant

    Lambeau Leapers scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Tyler Lockett at pick number 177.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Outstanding, Bodacious, Jaw-dropping

    Is that what OBJ stands for? Last season, Beckham logged his third straight campaign of 90+ receptions, 1,300+ receiving yards, and 10+ TDs. Only one NFL player (Mike Evans) saw more targets in 2016.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    DeMarco Murray was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • M. Bennett, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 57
    A Big Target in the Red Zone

    With 8.1 projected TD catches, Martellus Bennett ranks fourth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

    • Dak Prescott, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 64
    Lambeau Leapers Selects Signal-Caller Prescott at Pick No. 64

    The Cowboys' man under center is projected to earn 364 points this year, after putting up 337 last year.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 81
    Peterson Reinforces Ground Attack for Lambeau Leapers

    The Saints' running back is projected to significantly exceed his production (9 points) from last year.

Best Available

    • Rank 202, ADP 130

    • Rank 210, ADP 126
    • Brandon McManus

How We Grade

Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances. This is calculated by counting the number of fantasy points teams are projected to score over the course of the season using their optimal line-ups. The grades do not take schedule into account. Because of bye weeks and other variables it is possible to earn a high grade yet be projected to finish in the middle of the pack. The opposite is also true. Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
